Travel Information

Final Destination: Budapest

From 07:40 daily the timetable is arranged so that there is an hourly departure, with the service alternating between Railjets (the Austrian trains) and IC/EC trains (the Hungarian trains).
The Railjets typically depart in the odd hours, with the IC/EC trains leaving in the even hours.
Aside from the fact that the Railjets convey restaurant cars and the IC/EC trains don't, there is little difference in the on-board experience, the Hungarian national rail operator MAV tends to use its most modern trains on this route.

The first train of the day is the 'Wiener Walzer' EuroNight train which will be heading to Budapest from Zurich/Muncben
It has 2nd class seats in compartments.

It is the demand per departure which impacts on ticket prices, rather than the type of train providing the service.
So on this route, the smarter Railjet trains can be cheaper than the D trains (EC trains) and vice versa.

During the day the timetable is arranged so that in most hours there will be a Raijet train or D train departing, so if you need to depart or arrive at specific times, it won't particularly which type of train you will be travelling by.

Though if it doesn't particularly matter which time of day you will be travelling at, it can pay off to search through the departures to find the cheaper tickets; particularly if you will be booking less than a month ahead.

OBB's online booking service doesn't have a 'direct trains' or 'fast trains' filter, but avoid the journeys involving REX trains.

OBB Guide

OBB is the national rail operator and its booking service offers journeys by express trains within Austria, as well as international journeys which don't involve making a connection outside of Austria.

It pays off to book online, as the discounted 'Sparscheine' tickets are only ever made available on the website, and when making international journeys to and from Austria, these Sparscheine tickets tend to be cheaper.
OBB can offer particularly good value for money when travelling with children on international rail journeys, but something to watch out for when travelling between Austria and Germany on daytime trains, is that reservations are an optional extra; but if you book 1st class tickets with the Germany railways website DB, the reservations are complimentary.

OBB often takes a unique approach to its booking path, but a key thing to keep in mind is that the first price you will see for any journey is that of a Second Class seat.
The costs of upgrading to first class, a reservation, or a sleeping cabin etc, is then added to this price.

Happy rail from €14

Happy rail Guide

Happy Rail is a Netherlands rail ticket agency which sells tickets for both national and international journeys within a range of countries including Belgium France, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland.

HappyRail doesn't charge booking fees in the conventional sense, but if you're not Dutch you can expect to pay additional transaction fees, which will be added to the total cost.
That's because the most common form of online payment used in The Netherlands is 'iDEAL' and HappyRail doesn't charge a transaction fee for 'iDEAL' payments, but only Dutch residents can sign up to 'iDEAL'.
Other forms of payment include Visa debit cards will incur a fee.
